Dreamcatcher Nails Tutorial

Hi everyone,
Today is my blogaversary!!!!
I cannot believe it has been a year since I have started this blog!
Thank- you to everyone who follows me, I cannot believe I have been blogging for a year now!

For my final tutorial I thought I'd show you how I created one of my favourite designs: Dreamcatcher Nails! (You can see the post here).

Here are the nail polishes I used:

Here is the brush I used:

Now on to the tutorial:

Paint your nails with a base coat and then add your chosen base colour.

Dip your nail art brush into your black nail polish and paint a half moon onto your nail. To make the line thicker, go over it until you get it as thick as you want.

Using your brush paint some lines going off your half moon at random lengths.

Use your brush to create an X in the centre of your half moon.

Extend the lines in the middle of your half moon to each side.

Wipe any excess glitter off your glitter polish and carefully add a blob of the polish into the middle of the half moon.

Wipe of any excess nail polish from your gold polish brush and then carefully dab spots onto your lines.

Wait for your design to try and then add a topcoat. You can clean up your design after using a brush dipped in acetone or my personal preference, Barry M Nail Polish Corrector.

Here is a round up of all the steps:
